Thank you Colin. In the interests of simplicity I'm trying to keep the
full code away from this post, it'll only make things more complex.
Basically, I'm working on a three-tier menu system. You can enable/
disable a menu option, and if all of the child items of a menu item
are enabled, then the parent becomes enabled. The reason I have all
the span_1, span_2 etc is because there are about 50 potential child
elements. Consider:

Option 1 ------> Option 2a
                 Option 2b -------> Option 3a
                 Option 2c          Option 3b

Option 2 ------> Option 2d -------> Option 3c
                 Option 2e          Option 3d
                                    Option 3e

I want to make it so when I enable option 3a and 3b, option 2b changes
to 'complete'. This is why those classnames have to be unique - they
could easily be IDs instead, but I still have the same issue. Each
collection of options is contained within a <div> whose ID is
dynamically generated, so I only want to test for <span>s within that
particular <div>. Do you follow now?
